Froukje  (eleionomae) A friend of mine started not to long ago with her 50 books per year. I'd liked this idea so much that I'm also starting with it! (week 37 2010 until week 37 2011)
I'm hoping to keep up with reading a book per week, cause the pressure with school and work is high (to much to do in so little time :|)!
Wish me luck ;)

Carol Neman | 469 comments Eleionomae...how is your name pronounced? Just curious. My real first name is Arletta, pronounced are-let-ta. Seems simple enough, but still, many do mispronounce it, and coupled with a German ethnic last name it was a mouthful...couldn't wait to get married and be able to change it.

I have Dewey's Nine Lives ebook on hold at the library. It supposed to be a collection of stories sent to Vicki Myron after her book came out. They are peoples stories about their own cats.

Froukje  (eleionomae) Connie: I saw the second book in my local bookstore last week, but I thought it was way to expensive (almost 20 euro's) so I didn't buy it.

Yes, I agree, the Kindle price was too expensive so I was going to wait until the price came down, but luckily I waited a couple of weeks and checked my Library's ebook selections and they got it in as a new ebook. I'm looking forward to reading it.



message 14: by Froukje (new)

Froukje  (eleionomae) that's a nice suprise then :) In Holland books are always expensive, that's why I started to buy english books via Amazon. Dewey the librarycat was a lucky one, it cost me only €3.95 but otherwise books are most of the time not affordable under €17..
